Buildings face people, they should have the ability to communicate with people and nature and let people in their presence actively explore the meaning of their actions. Because people build buildings as part of the process of natural evolution, human construction activities are, in a sense, a means of human evolution. We have all heard that primitive humans living in tropical rainforests have harvested and burned trees to obtain fertile cultivated land, which in turn led to the story of the rainforest receding into the desert. The existing built environment, whether it is a bustling city or a quiet country, is like a forest that accommodates diverse ecology. In recent years, the state of urban and rural construction in China is like a rainforest in the wild. Traditional houses that have been preserved for hundreds of years have been pushed down without thinking. The skyscrapers were built with joy on the ruins. The diverse architectural language preserved in the environment is degenerating into a desert and spreading across the entire Chinese landscape. In the face of such inability to stop the dilemma, if we re-examine the "metabolism" view in front of us, we may find a new way of operating in the face of the existing built environment - space planting.
“Space planting” is a function-variable space that implants uncertainty into the environment on the premise of fully retaining the existing built environment; the dominant nature of space is no longer “factory setting”, but truly becomes a space user. Personality characteristics. Starting from this concept, I carried out a spatial transformation design for an old building in Nanjing and a Ganjiang Road block in Suzhou. It is also used to explain that architecture is part of the broader nature of the world. The change of the built environment can be carried out in a place like “planting on the old tree” through a “space planting” approach.
